Uma Audioteca no Brasil, o Robot de Rob, Licenças, Carpintaria, e outro Shuttle

Eis algo cheio de valor humano, a divulgar, uma Audioteca no Brasil, para Cegos e deficientes Visuais:



A Audioteca

Meus olhos são seus olhos

A Audioteca Sal & Luz é uma instituição filantrópica, sem fins lucrativos, que produz e empresta livros falados (audiolivros) para pessoas cegas ou com deficiência visual, em todo o território nacional, de forma gratuita.
Possui, hoje, mais de 1.700 associados e conta, em seu acervo, com cerca de 2.700 títulos, entre didáticos/profissionalizantes e literatura.
Nosso objetivo é proporcionar, aos nossos associados, meios para a conquista de uma vida com qualidade.
Mais do que inclusão, desejamos viver numa sociedade que não exclua seus filhos, a despeito de todas as diferenças. Que essas diferenças sejam o estímulo necessário para nosso crescimento individual e para a construção de uma nação mais justa.

O Robot de Rob Ives avança, e esta imagem vale mil palavras...
E o que um Engenhocas faz, em  papel, quantos outros farão, em Latão?
Na mesma página um Link para um Arquivo de todos os planos do Rob, vão lá!




Flexible Arm - Experimental Project.

To be more accurate there are two versions of this flexible arm project for members to download and make.
Version one uses two tendons to move the arm up and down.
Version two uses a single tendon with spacers to keep it away from the centre line.








Para gerir as necessárias Licenças de Programas, numa Empresa, eis um Software a considerar:


 

Licence management – everything under one roof

Detect if costly licences are unused. Act when co-workers cannot get their work done, because there are no free licences for the software they need. Make an informed decision, if you will need more licences in the future or if you can cancel software maintenance on a few licences. And make sure, that the software is just used as contracted.
  • recognize surplus – save licence costs
  • recognize needs – avoid licence shortages
  • monitor licences – optimize licence usage
  • maintain licence agreements – prevent penalties
OpenLM shows you at a glance how your software licence pool is used.







 




Para cortar Madeira, eis uma Ferramenta impressionante, que dá vontade de fazer, só porque sim, mas é muito útil, também:


How to make a better cross cut sled

Crosscut sleds are essential for woodworkers with traditional table saws. They make cross cutting operations a lot more accurate, a lot cleaner, and a lot safer. With a couple neat tricks, you can really expand the usefulness of this jig. Woodworking is essentially pattern making. A jig like this helps make repeatable, precision cut patterns easier.

I have quite a few sleds for different operations. The problem is they can be quite large and storing them in my garage shop is becoming a chore. I decided to create a multi-purpose sled for various cross cutting, compound miter cutting, and dado operations.







 





E para quem tem saudades do Space Shuttle, eis uma versão nova, da DARPA, e muito mais rentável...
No espaço de um só dia, já está pronto para re-lançar para o Espaço:






DARPA's XS-1 sets goal of space launches with one-day turnaround

David Szondy

Currently, launching satellites is an involved and expensive process. DARPA’s Experimental Spaceplane (XS-1) program hopes to make this a thing of the past, by developing a shuttle-like resuable launch system that can turn around from landing to relaunch in one day, and bring down the cost of launching by a factor of 10.
We live in a fast-paced world where international situations can change overnight. Areas that were once stable and peaceful can suddenly turn into hotbeds of war and crisis. To deal with these security threats, the United States relies, in part, on its fleet of military surveillance satellites. Unfortunately, whereas a threat can pop up suddenly, satellites can only be launched from a handful of locations, plus they require the logistics of a small war to launch, and take years and hundreds of millions of dollars to put into orbit. This makes putting assets in space on short notice a herculean task.
